COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kolsch, the clean and refreshing beer style of Cologne, Germany, quenches summertime thirst. This pale golden ale with a lightly fruity aroma is cold-conditioned or lagered after its primary fermentation. More simply, our Summertime uses only the finest malts and German hops to create the perfect beer for hot Summer days and warm Summer nights.

Hazy yellow, white head, and a good deal of lace. Aroma has hints of apple and citrus. Full mouthfeel with low carbonation. Slightly slippery. Sweet and satisfying.

Well autumn is at hand and I’m drinking the summer beer that BigBadBear63 sent Cheers, thanks and me again!
Pale golden body with a serious mound of cotton for the head, I’m talking 4” or more. Nice crisp malt aroma and flavor, lemons, fresh rising bread dough, but mostly barley and lemon zest. The finish is smooth as a freshly luffaed butt; this is texture I’m talking about not aroma or flavor! Dry- lemony- mostly hoppy –yeasty finish- I like it!

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2005 A good example of the style. Looked exactly as it should, smelled fresh and hoppy, tasted fresh and hoppy too. If you can find some, definitely give this beer a try. It’s a great quaffing beer, nothing too complex, just a simple, refreshing and tasty ale to drink ice cold on a hot summer day.

The beer looked wonderful. It was a little couldy but it had a beautiful white head and laced wonderfully. The smell was ok. It was full of grains and a little malt. The taste reminded me of what straw would taste like. It tastes like there was a lot of wheat malt used in this. There wasn't much sweetness and it wasn't very refreshing to me. Not enjoyable.

Light goldern beer with little head. Refreshing, crisp and drinkable with a lemony taste. Little malty present but a nice but light hoppy bight. Not bad.

Very light golden, little to no head. Light grass and a touch of citrus sourness. Dry at the front getting towards lemon, not all that sour though, just reminiscent of lemon. Spritzy and dry with a somewhat roasty hop presence. Might not be the freshest sample, but I reckon there should be more flavors noticeable than what were.

Straw colored, hoppy sulphury nose, well carbonated. Refreshing with good malt/hop balance but with soft palate and dry finish.

Indra (2570) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Fruity, flowery, malty and sweet aroma, with notes of honey, very faintly spicy hop and pineapple(?). Medium golden yellow color, with a slight but creamy head. Flavor is initially malty, sweet and honeyish, with a touch of spice soon after and a very lightly bittering finish. Light bodied, fizzy on the palate and a bit watery. Refreshing, though.

ClarkVV (3863) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Pours an amber with some yellow/orange tinges. Little to no head and quite clear. Aroma smells slightly citrusy, slightly crisp and yeasty. Begins spicy, with some dry citrus fruit tones and moderate acidity. Only mildly sweet, but in the finish there was a candyish malt that seemed a bit too powerful and unbalanced. It was slightly sour and cloying after I had had 2 or 3 of these beers. Aftertaste was not good, and had this old, syrupy malt flavor lingering. Carbonation added too much of a peppery texture. Medium bodied is a stretch.

This is the first beer I am drinking today...on my birthday. YEA. Happy Birthday Me. I am telling you this because I can't say much good about this beer. It has alcohol and it taste like beer...that's about it.
